Best Psychic Type Pokemon

disturbedbomb

The Top Ten

1 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo is unstoppable what other Pokemon control Pokemon seriously he has his own Pokemon also he has the ability to take all Pokemon powers away that means no special abilities have you ever heard of the move struggle that's exactly what all will do with no abilities he is the only Pokemon to make Ash cry this Legendary Pokemon is the 1 and only man made Pokemon he has the knowledge and history of man kind and of all Pokemon and he literally reads and study's what Pokemon wants to go to a library he is a different breed of Pokemon look at the first Pokemon movie it's clear to see Mewtwo is the most powerful of all the only way you can beat him is time travel back in time to stop him from being created seriously good luck finding celebi

Laugh out loud how do people even get the idea espeon and alakazam could match up with mewtwo. Lets take out his new mega evolution (Y) which makes him the strongest Pokemon in the entire series, seconded only by his (X) mega evolution. so yeah take that fact out and plain mewtwo has base stats totaling 680! Espeon base stats fall at about 525 and alakazam 490... only reason he is on any top ten is because of nostalgia. Plus Metagross near bottom of the list has base stat of 600 topping both these I do not understand where people even get the basis for their votes sure the Pokemon are good but this is a top ten list not a top ten favorite list sigh

How do these stupid weak pokemon come before Mewtwo? Mewtwo could destroy all of them in his sleep! Vote for Mewtwo, the strongest pokemon ever!

Mewtwo definitely the ultimate psychic type it's so awesome it's overrated but come on one of the first legendary pokemon because of mega evolution highest base stat total enormous move pool run physical or special it's just epic

2 Alakazam Alakazam

I am angered that, whenever I get on this website, most comments I see are simply saying, "Y you NO PICK ALAKAZAM! He's the BEST Y you ALL SO STUPID! "*Cough, The first three comments for Alakazam, *Cough* That's right, I'm talking to everybody. These pages are designed for people to say their opinion and BACK IT UP WITH EVIDENCE! Speaking of which, if you want to know what this "Mysterious, elusive 'Sigilyph' thing," is, play Generation 5. They really are good games. Now I know that some of you are Genwunners, and that's okay. However, every generation has it's charms. For example, Generation 2 allowed you to visit TWO regions, Johto and Kanto. Generation 3(Not counting the remakes) had two different teams, and many evolutions in game mechanics. Generation 4 was chock-full of postgame, and that was really fun to play. Generation 5 had fantastic plot and character development. Personally, I love Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald with all my heart, but if somebody likes ...more

I kinda would want to vote for gardevoir cause it is op and a unique fairy type. Count the mega evolution as well. Alakazam is probably better though and my choice of a psychic type. I used one in diamond and it teamed up very well with my Gengar. The combo is op. He is probably better cause he can mega evolve. He can counter dark types by learning either focus punch or drain punch. Psychic is an op move. Overall he is good and probably because he eats very healthy breakfasts. (I think the reason he has spoons)

Alakazam is nearly perfect in singleplayer, multiplayer, and post-game on just about any game you can catch it. Training Abra requires either switch and kill or an Exp. Share, but it's well worth it for about the best you can get. With 135 special attack, a BLISTERING 120 speed, and access to amazing moves such as STAB Psychic and Dazzling Gleam, Alakazam can sweep a whole team with little to no setup. If you are the kind to set up, however, Alakazam has access to Calm Mind and both screens to be able to hold off any attack for your setup. Special walls aren't a problem either, because Alakazam has access to all of the elemental punches! There are a few holes in Alakazam however, such as how it can barely hold up to a Tyranitar unless Focus Blast can hit. If you can get past a few of Alakazam's weaknesses, it can be one heck of a team member.

Alakazam IS JUST POWERFUL HE HAS GOOD MOVES VERY good defense GOOD ATTACK best moves ever so you guys please PICk alakazam

3 Espeon Espeon

Espeon teamed with a decent baton passer may in fact be the best Pokemon in the game with it's high spec. Att and speed if you set this up right you've got an incredibly powerful Pokemon that can't be switched out by anything other than dragon tail and is immune to toxic etcetera I mean with just two calm minds it can take out any none resistant Pokemon in one hit with an iron defense and a speed boost (1 turn from scolipede) baton passed then 2 turns of calm mind that makes 7 stages boosted making stored power a 160 base power move and then stab makes it 240 power and then your say 385 spec. Att (my espeons spec. Att) is doubled to 770 aswel. No joke I played ubers as a joke n by fluke managed to get espeon set up and took down all the team including a mega rayquaza a darkrai and both primal Pokemon (had to use dazzling gleam on darkrai)

Espeon is awesome with his awesome special attack of 130 and say it has a nature like modest it will be able to surpass even Alakazam with his awesome speed and great ability. Whoever is an espeon hater doesn't know the meaning of AWESOME!

Why is sigilyph in first place? Like come on now we all know that espeon is like the best psychic type ever with its high special attack and awesome speed so why is espeon only in seventh place come on vote for espeon

MEWTWO IS TRASH TO ESPEON!

4 Gardevoir Gardevoir

I have a gardevior on my black. Got it as a ralts in the beginning from this cool ap as well as mudkip, charmander, and turtwig. It has a amazing special attack and special defense. Great Wall and sweeper. Decent speedy too. Mine is still in the low 30's but it knows confusion, magical leaf, double team (this move has saved me so many times) and teleport (for those lazy people who want poke center fast) it will learn much better moves soon, but it is still amazing. Vote for this pokemon.

I almost literally fell in love with this Pokemon when I first played. And its not just because of its looks. I mean sure it played a bit part, I mean come on, this is the female version of a British gentleman (that would mean a lady but honestly it wrecks way too hard for it be a mere lady). Its special stats are one of the best in the game and it can take couple of hits physically as well since trough all the games I played with Gardevoir it never fainted from 1 hit when at full health. Truth be told the worst of its stats are still decent or above average and IT LOOKS CLASSY.

The most elegant Pokémon in existence, it's cry is mesmerising and it's mega evolution is extraordinary, no wonder gardevoir was the final Pokemon in Pokemon x & y, it is extremely powerful and its special attack and defense are very high. I have loved it since the start, to me it is a priority to catch a ralts and evolve it. I also love the improved fairy type, I also love how it can learn thunderbolt (electric type) and energy ball (grass type) giving it a wide range of type attacks, making it almost super effective against anything. My grade our knows psychic, dazzling gleam, thunderbolt and energy ball.

You see gardevoir is according to me the best, better than Alakazam some might say espeon is better but gardevoir or rather mega gardevoir. Also gardevoir has two types psychic and fairy whereas alakazam only psychic. in all my games I have one gardevoir because her fairy type helps me against dragon type. And as a matter of fact I like gardevoir's mega form better in looks than alakazam and espeon does not have a mega form hence gardevoir should be second.

5 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is really awesome! It can learn attacks to counter it's weaknesses, and it can learn OP moves too. Even if you don't want to use it in battle, you can teach it hm's to help you on your journey. And it's so cute watch the movie!

Mewtwo was created by Mew and also Mew has the DNA of every Pokemon allowing it to learn every move in the game. Mewtwo is effected by shadow ball but more resistance to dark, bug, psychic type weakness's etc. So therefore Mew is the best psychic Pokemon. And also has more understanding of the world around him than Mewtwo and any other Pokemon.

He is cute!
Vote for mew or he will say mewmewmewmewmewmewmewmewmew a million times and use his physic power on you!

I think mew should be number one because it is so OP and plus it is so cute

6 Metagross Metagross

Metagross is the best pseudo-legendary as his type is better than others. Steel type always help. Its defense and attack are insane and can be a good wall. When it mega evolves it has a huge improvement in its speed and it turns into a destructive sweeper. This should definitely be much higher. Sorry for my grammer

It has amazing resistances to many types and it's stats make it a perfect tank/setup/physical and special sweeper it can beat most Pokemon if not all and the weakness to ghost and dark he can learn pursuit for ghost and he can learn hammer arm for dark also can learn some water type moves to get rid of that fire and ground weakness

It has the best non legendary base stat of all the psychic pokemon why its standing number 9?

I wouldn't say it's better than mewtwo or alakazam but it's way better than espion.

7 Gallade Gallade

Gallade, the noble Knight of the Pokemon universe, is one of the most unique Pokemon out there. its stats are excellent, with 115 Special Defense and a whopping 125 Attack. With great STAB in Zen Headbutt, Psycho Cut, and Close Combat, and the Special bulk to take one of Gengar's STAB Shadow Balls, along with the cool design, its a wonder Gallade hasn't topped the list yet.

Why is this not WAY higher in the list? Gallade is a FIGHTING PSYCHIC pokemon people, with AMAZING attack. It can take out SO much.

Yeah, yeah Mewtwo has telekinetic powers, but does he have swords for elbows? NO! Gallade can absolutely knock out every other psychic type Pokemon if you teach him Night slash. With his high attack stat, he would knock out Mewtwo any day!

YEAH BOI. Wait. Why is it not 1st? This guy is the ultimate boss. I had level 30 gallade and it 2 hit a level 45 raichu with phsycho cut. OP and gardevoir brother

8 Latios Latios

Sorry, but latios should be number one on this list, in my opinion latios is the best thing that happened to pokemon. This is for two reasons 1 the weaknesses and strengths. It is weak to fairy, dragon, ice, and dark and strong to dragon, fighting and other common types. And reason 2: IT'S MY FAVORITE POKEMON!

Why is this Dragon/Psychic pokemon so low on the list, It should be number 2 after mewtwo.

Latinos should seriously be 2nd or third cause it has great attacks and a good defense. MY FAVOURITE Pokemon. LATIOS/LATIAS can beat alakazam or meta gross anytime VOTE IT FOR 2ND!

Latios has a good type range and can deal with a lot more Pokemon then espeion

9 Lugia Lugia

He is based on one of the Creation Gods (the others being Arceus and Ho-oh) in Shinto mythology. If you are not convinced yet...check out the Silver tower and the Gold Tower that they are actual buildings in Kyoto dedicated to those Gods (dragon/male/silver), (phoenix/female/gold).Also the silver tower was burned in the past but was reconstructed...guess what in the game there's a burned tower, coincidence? I think not. Also for those who think that Lugia can reproduce. HE CANNOT. He is unique just like every other big legend. Stay out of the anime that no one should take seriously. Also, he can easily outclass Mewtwo...but I guess everyone goes for the classic choice.

Seriously? 27? Why is overrated Espeon Number 1? Lugia is definitely the best psychic Pokemon here (And its below Abra. Its like these people do not know Lugia exists. ) Not only is Lugia the RULER OF THE SEA, she can kick butt with not only her psychic moves, but water moves too. Plus, it's a LEGENDARY Pokemon WHO CAN REPRODUCE. There are more than 1 Lugia.

Reason it's so low is because people think its flying/water type, which it should be. But because it isn't its top 2 with Mewtwo. best says it all

THIS is at 9. ESPEON is at 3. Really, Lugia CAN beat that cat. REALLY.
It can stop 3 legendaries fighting! Why isn't this at the top, along with Mewtwo?

10 Deoxys Deoxys

Okay, whoever posted the card thing, this is about the game, not the card game, if there's a top psychic type Pokemon card thing, then feel free to comment there

Biohazard, my deoxys, is a great hazard setter

This dude can regenerate and duplicate people think about it

Hell yeah! this Pokémon has four formes. The best forme that's good in my opinion is it's speed forme.

The Newcomers

? Mega Metagross Mega Metagross

The Contenders

11 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

His pretty much god come on war of time anyone created giratina my second favorite ghost look at the odds every one vs god who wins god he would be able to war of time yo to yo mamma

Technically, since you didn't specify he had the plate, he's normal type.

East or west arceus is the best because it created the entire world

12 Starmie Starmie

Been using since gen 1. No complaints here. Just praise. Still have one on my party on x and as

Awesome Pokemon. Fast, versatile, destructive, can take a few hits, really nice design, deceptively powerful

Starmie is not just my favorite water/psychic type but is my favorite Pokemon in general, even took the time to get myself a shiny one with 5 ivs modest nature and natural cure, now with that out of the way, decent all around bulk, wide movepool, great special attack and speed whats not to like.

This guy is NOT a psychic type.

13 Victini Victini

Victini is the cutest Pokemon I ever seen. I think he is one of the top ten cutest. He is also is one of the strongest.

Victini can't lose. No, I'm serious it's the victory Pokemon plus it's adorable

It is a very cute pokemon

Signature move: V-Create
Base power-180 more than the most powerful dragon type move- Roar of Time(150) and all moves except Z-Moves and moves that cause fainting
Plus It is the victory pokemon

14 Wobbuffet Wobbuffet

Everyone just hates this Pokemon because it can learn only up to seven moves. But it is one of the most perfect Pokemon created - Encore, Destiny bond, counter, and mirror coat is just a power move set! I have completed the elite four and champion and one of my Pokemon was wobbuffet, and he contributed a lot in battles!

I feel this Pokemon is underrated because it looks funny and has few moves. However, those 7 moves when used together make this thing a huge threat and you can defeat almost anything with it if your using it right.

It should be on rank 1. No one can attack on him because of it's counter and mirror coat attack. Amazingly he is most powerful in the world in Pokemon.

Best defense Pokémon ever

15 Sigilyph Sigilyph

Why doesn't this guy evolve from unown it would put unown to good use

You wanna know how much I love Sigilyph? I'd rather have him than Lugia, a LEGENDARY with the same typing.

Best Pokemon with cosmic power spam+ psycho shift (flame orb)+ stored power and roost. 1 word if you do all these things.. OP

Gotta give it to this guy he is the only wild Pokémon to have ever beat my team plus he's one of the few decent gen 5 Pokémon

16 Latias Latias

This thing is a tank. It's bulky enough to take some hits if it doesn't ohko it's opponents (which doesn't really happen. It usually does). Great move pool and helped me grab the Battle Symbols at the frontier

It even mega evolves so why is this so low!

It should be right after Latios

Best Pokémon ever. It can take hits well. I win every battle because of it.

17 Abra Abra

"Oh look! An Abra, I'm gonna catch it! "... Abra used teleport. "... MOTHERF--!

Abra is the most annoying pokemon ever your like "ooh abra it becomes alacazam I'm gonna catch but I only have normal pokeballs ok treeko use absorb" abra used teleport "fuc* this pokemon"

18 Slowbro Slowbro

Slow toe tanks and a water type

He may be slow but his stats cover up for it

He's so lazy! I love SlowBro

How is he number 18? He's crush several of the pokemon ahead of him.

Oh, right, 90% of these voters are basing it on appearance and the anime as opposed to stats and the game.

19 Azelf Azelf

My favorite Pokemon of the lakes

Too bad its just a suicide lead

Azelf is the best Pokemon ever!
My fave
Azelf looks good as shiny
Its also not a fairy type!
Just psychic
Plus super cute and legit! - ScarlettTheAzelf

Azelf is like the best Pokemon ever
I think it should be no. 1

20 Exeggutor Exeggutor

His original sprite makes him give children nightmares

I beat alpha sapphire with exeggutor and he saved me from tough situations!

This guy could reck the elite four by himself over level 60

Exeggutor has one of the highest Sp. A stats for a psychic type, excluding megas and legendaries. Also, he may not have high speed or attack, but normal attacking moves are just bad to give to a psychic type anyway. Also, his bad speed can easily be fixed with a move like sleeping powder or stun spore. Altogether with a moveset consisting of Psychic, Solar beam, Synthesis, and Stun spore/sleeping powder it has the capability to be a good pokemon to have. And who knows, with his alola form potential boosting his stats a lot.
